We consider you to have started working as an entrepreneur at the earliest when the actual production or financial operations start. If starting to work as an entrepreneur requires a lot of work, the TE Office may consider you to have become an entrepreneur already before the beginning of the actual production operations.

In most cases, you are also considered to have become an entrepreneur when you have entered your company in the following registers

  • VAT register
  • prepayment register for taxes or
  • employer register of the Tax Administration

The entry of the company in the Trade Register is not significant in evaluating the date you started working as an entrepreneur
